The story of the auctioneer and his business...
I attended for the first time in my life, a sale by auction, there are now more than 40 years. I was 4 years old and I remember it like it was yesterday. My parents and grandparents was bringing me every Saturday, if I've been good during the week. I remember there were a lot of people, there were people at the front of the room that showed things and a man who spoke very quickly. But what I remember most of all is that it also sold food and my parents bought me a pack of mixed cookies and a soda Crush! It was worth it to be nice for a week.
Thereafter I continued to follow this type of sale with my parents without ever suspecting that one day I should act with passion, this wonderful art.
In 1989, at the age of 21, after losing my job, I decided to start my own auction business.
With my parents, we rent a room of 1200 square feet in Rougemont. I should sell for 2 and a half years but success is coming fast and this local is no longer suitable to our needs.
In 1992, we acquired a commercial property of 4000 square feet in St. Cesaire. We continue the auctions and open a store in used appliances and furniture. In 1997, change of use to trade in used furniture that gives way to an antique shop, the beginning of a new passion.
In 1998, we added a sale by auction every month: It is our antiques and selected goods auction. Electricity sales with a huge success and provide us a customer goodwill, buyers and sellers, that we could never hope even in our wildest dreams.
In December 2000, we sell this property to the City of Saint Césaire, who wishes to build the municipal garage, and unfortunately we put our business on standby.
April 2002, I purchased with my wife, a property in 25 East Main, St-Paul-d'Abbotsford, Que. This property is now the headquarters of the company 9190 1355 Quebec Inc. Dany Forand auctioneer . We build our house and live there since that time. It also includes 2 accessory buildings with an area of over 5000 square feet in which we build: A showroom for our consignment auctions , a woodworking shop to restore antiques to be sold in our auctions or to meet the needs of our customers. A conference room is available to provide training and to various courses and finally a commercial kitchen to accommodate our customers when we do our auctions and where we prepared buffets and fancy cakes of Gabrielle, my daughter's company, Sweet Decor.
